When reloading pistol calibers, I will generally start at the minimum and load about 100 rounds of a given powder amount.
Increment .5 and do another 100 rounds, increment .5 and do another 100 rounds until .3 or .4 under the max load.
Depending on feed problems, you may find you have to play a bit with the overall length of the round.
Good luck and let us know the results.

I used to use WIN 231, but IMHO, it was pretty smoky and left a lot of unburnt/half-burnt power to gum up the feed ramp, bolt, and the inside of the receiver. FWIW, I've also tried Federal large pistol primers, but, to me, they seemed too soft.
